NordLink is a proposed subsea HVDC power cable between Norway and Germany. The capacity of NordLink is expected to be 1,400 MW. It is estimated to cost €1.5-2 billion. The interconnector is planned installed between a new substation at Ertsmyra in Norway and Wilster substation in Schleswig-Holstein in Germany. The new connection would be operational by 2018.
The Norwegian transmission system operator Statnett SF owns 50% of the project, whilst the German transmission system operator TenneT TSO and the state owned bank KfW owns 50%. A cable between Norway and Germany is listed in the EU's projects of common interest (PCI).
